Well it seems it is on for real, a Beverly Hills auction house began accepting bids Friday for Elvis Presley's former personal planes, the Lisa Marie
and Hound Dog II
. The auction appeared to dump cold water on a social media-fuelled campaign pleading with Graceland
operators to keep the planes on display, as they've been for 30 years. Graceland's new owners stirred controversy last April by moving to end a joint venture with the planes' owners, a Tennessee-based group called OKC Partnership. Graceland notified OKC that the planes had to be removed from Graceland on or shortly after April 26, 2015. AND words are flying between fans and EPE, and Priscilla has again responded to the criticism.

He was musical director and conductor for Elvis' concert shows from the summer of 1970 to the summer of 1977 when Elvis made his last concert appearance.
